Market: Middlesborough and Wolves both to score
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet365
With the Championship table reaching the business end of the season, English football’s second division remains incredibly tight at both ends of the table with just a single point seeing a team jump several places. On that note, playoff hopefuls Middlesborough will play host to the league’s runaway leaders.
For the hosts on Friday afternoon, former Stoke boss Tony Pulis has done an admirable job since joining Middlesbrough before the turn of the New Year. After 38 Championship matches this season, Middlesbrough have recorded 18 wins, eight draws and 12 defeats, scoring 54 and conceding 36 in return. With a points tally of 62, Middlesbrough currently sit sixth in the table and occupy that final lucrative playoff position. Now 14 points adrift of automatic promotion, Pulis’ side are fully focused on extending their single point advantage over Bristol City in seventh. As for their recent form, Middlesbrough are now unbeaten in their last seven appearances, winning five and drawing two, the Reds have also scored three or more goals in four of those seven.
As for the visitors, while Middlesbrough may have to go about earning promotion the hard way, Wolves have continued to cement their spot at the head of the Championship table and the Midlands side march towards Premier League football next season. After 38 games this year, Wolves have won 25, drawn seven and lost six, scoring 69 and conceding 33, they hold the best-attacking statistics in the division. With a points tally of 82, Wolves already hold a six-point advantage over Cardiff in second and are 12 points clear of falling into the playoffs. As for their recent form, while Wolves have won their last two matches in a row, they have briefly struggled on the road, Wolves have won just one of their last four matches away from Molineux.
